This evening Kathy was up for a challenge to test her strength and stamina and also to explore plank deeply to find her best plank. Here is what she found:
“When I pressed back into my heels and down on my fingers it eased some of the strain in my arms. It also helped if I kept my elbows from locking. Pressing back in the heels made it easier to keep my core muscles engaged.”
TIPS: Hips staying in line helps keep the core muscles firing too. Soften the elbows if your elbow joints feel strain and press into the fingers and thumbs.
She held that plank for two full minutes!
How about you? Got plank?
